Portrait Packages

Every image is precious and none is more important than a beautiful portrait image. Our photographers are trained in the art of capturing a child's personality and ensuring that the essence of every child is reflected in their school portrait. Our goal is to deliver a classic timeless portrait that will be treasured forever.

  • Basic Package

  • Sibling Essential Package


Capturing a classic group photo that is balanced and well formatted takes years of experience and training. For more than 30 years our group photographers have turned classic large group photography into an art form. To capture that special image, whether it's a group of 20 or a whole school photo of 1200+, there's no one more experienced than an advancedlife group photographer. Of course capturing the image is only half the job and, once we've captured images of the highest quality, we print them in our own state of the art lab in your school's choice of package format, using the most advanced processes available.


Our promo photographers capture unique images that represent your school and then our design team, in consultation with you, transform these images into front covers that are showcase your school. Or we can work with you to create a custom cover design to showcase your school.
